    My deaf nephew loved this so much he asked me to watch it. Truly a great way to show compassion and love.

    I show this movie every time I do a thematic unit on Deaf/Blind. The students love it and learn a lot about Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan. They have demonstrated a more sensitive perspective of people with disabilities. :)
